Will you have to provide employee pay data with your EEO-1? When’s the new EEO-1 deadline? I’ve got answers.


Since pretty much everything is a letdown after exorcisms and sex questionnaires, I’m aiming particularly low today with a simple update on when you’ll have to file your EEO-1 Report and whether you’ll have to include employee pay data with the report.

(By the way, I’m sorry about the late post today. IT was performing server maintenance this morning, which may have had something to do with yesterday’s post and your clickety-clicks.)

A brief recap.

Since 1966, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has required that employers with one hundred or more employees file with the EEOC the “Employer Information Report EEO-1”.

In 2017, there were plans to have employers provide employee pay data as part of the EEO-1 filing. But, that new reporting requirement never came to fruition. Instead, about a year and a half ago, I blogged here about the White House Office of Management and Budget nixed the new reporting requirement.

Then, about a month ago, I blogged here about a DC federal court decision which brought back the pay-data reporting requirement. A few weeks ago, I wrote here that the court gave the EEOC until April 3 to tell employers if they’ll have to report pay information in this year’s EEO-1 reports.

If you head over the EEOC’s EEO-1 page, the current EEO-1 deadline is May 31, 2019.

Will you have to provide 2018 pay data?


When will be the new EEO-1 deadline?

September 30, 2019.

“I don’t believe you, Eric. I want to read the EEOC’s latest court filing for myself.”

Bruh. Ok.

What should you be doing to prepare?

Read the instructions. Presumably, these will be updated soon with information on how to provide employee pay data.
